Car service from Schiphol Aiport

Hi. Can anyone recommend a good car service (transfer) company from Schiphol Aiport? We are flying in from US on December 29. A number of different companies come up in Google search but none have any reviews. After hearing some bad stories about Amsterdam cabs, I just want to know if there is a good reliable company that can pick you up from airport and won't take advantage of the customer. Thank you in advance!

Taking a taxi from Schipol, to the city centre, is safe! The drivers are polite, helpful and trustworthy.

Take the train. It is so easy and cheap. Everybody does it. They leave every 15 minutes for Centraal Station.

We always take a cab from Schiphol to our home in Amsterdam - being doing it for +15 years and have NEVER had a problem. Cost you about 40€.

Enjoy our beautiful city - MMK

Forget the train! When your just off an overnight flight and dragging all your luggage with you, a taxi from Schipol is the way to go. People like to suggest the train from Schipol because they are cheap, but taxi right to the door f your destination is much more appropriate for weary traveler!

The official taxi's at the airport are highly regulated and very safe. You can just get into whichever one you want on the rank.

Conexxion also operate taxi's from the rank and their drivers are salaried so don't get paid on the distance you travel. I also can personally recommend Taxi-E but you have to call them in advance as they are not allowed to pick up from the rank.

Or if you are staying near the Leidseplein, Vondelpark, or Museumplein bus 197 could be an option. I tend to travel alone so I almost always opt for public transit.
